The best way to hide files in your Samsung A8 is to first create a folder and put the files you want to hide inside that folder. The idea is to hide your folder by first of all changing its name to a .name file and then following up with unchecking the Show All Folders file when you see it on your screen's list. Keep in mind that this does not restrict the access to the file in any way. Checking the tick box that says Show Hidden Files will simply reveal it to you once again.

What do you mean by changing the folder's name to a .name file?

I do not quite understand how to do it still. I already have made a folder but then what. I have tried: I have made a folder but could not progress after that.

By default, filenames or folders that start with the . (period) character are hidden. So if for example, you have a folder named "MyFolder", and you then change the name to ".MyFolder", it will now be invisible unless you check the "Show Hidden Files" option.
